Sick Of Gingerbread Houses? Make Some Chocolate Dinosaurs Instead

Forget about that boring old gingerbread house, what is gingerbread anyway? I’ll tell you, it’s an abomination of a food which it’s only decent purpose is to serve as construction material. Forget about it all together, and this year make things a bit more Jurassic.

This is the Chocolate Construction Mold: T-Rex version. Just by melting some chocolate and cooling it in the mold, you can piece together your own prehistoric predator to museum-like replication. Imagine the look on everyone’s face as you roll up to Uncle Jack’s house for Christmas and show up with a Tyrannosaurus made out of chocolate indiscriminately eating gingerbread people.

There’s not much more that I can say expect it’s really cool, and why didn’t anyone buy me a chocolate t-rex chocolate mold as a kid? My life could’ve been so different, but I was stuck with gingerbread (boo).

Available on Amazon for $20. Order soon or your chances of getting one before Christmas will go extinct (I’m sorry).

Someone Made An Awesome Lego Mechanical Keyboard

Whether you’re a fan of Lego, mechanical keyboards or just cool things, someone made a pretty slick looking mechanical keyboard with Lego pieces.

In his video, Youtuber JK Brickworks shows off how he made his keyboard, which is taken from a Cooler Master Quickfire. Basically, he took the circuit board off and stuck it in his own Lego base. He even had 3D Lego keycaps made so that he could stick just about any 2×2 piece on top and use it as the keycap.

The final product is great homage to Lego, though it looks like a total pain to type on. Especially since some of us still stare at our keyboards when we type. What, it’s not like I’m a writer or anything.

More info can be found on his site, JK Brickworks, and there’s a video after the jump of him showing off the keyboard.

Ready Player One Gets Its First Trailer

In more awesome trailer news, Ready Player One just released its first trailer. Directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the book of the same name, Ready Player One is a about a future where a virtual reality world has become super massive and a crazy popular way to escape the awful day-to-day soul-sucking grind (I know, totally unrealistic).

The trailer looks pretty fun, and I can’t wait to see it for myself. And hey, Tracer from Overwatch is in it for a split-second, and that makes me unreasonably happy.

Ready Player One hits theaters on March 30.

Hit the jump for the trailer.  Continue Reading

NES Controller Welcome Mat Lets Everyone Know You’re A Gamer

If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for that nerdy friend this Christmas, check out the NES Controller doormat. It’s just like any ordinary doormat, but this is no ordinary doormat, it’s NES themed to warn people let everyone know that your friend is an adult-child who probably spends too much on video games.

The mat itself comes in at 15″ x 36″ and comes with a non-slip backing. I wish my controllers had a non-slip backing so I couldn’t throw them at the wall everytime I die and then feel a weird sense of guilt like I caused it physical pain.

Other than that, it’s a pretty standard welcome mat, I don’t have a lot of people coming over, but I’m sure the pizza guy would enjoy seeing it. Available on Etsy for $30 plus shipping.

Sprint Is Offering Customers Who Switch $100 In Pokémon Go Coins

For those looking to get a new cell service provider, and who happen to still have Pokémon Go, Sprint is now offering $100 (14,500 PokéCoins) in credit towards the game when your switch over to their service.

It’s a weird promotion for sure. First, I can’t imagine how many people still play Pokémon Go, and second, people shouldn’t make major contractual agreements based on an app about catching cartoon monsters. Like I said, it’s weird.

I haven’t played Pokémon Go since 2 hours after its release, but maybe this is a really good deal, personally I’m more of a My Little Pony: Magic Princess gamer myself. And maybe instead of offering $100 in PokéCoins, Sprint should try offering reliable service. Hey-oh!

LG Signature Phone Will Set You Back $1,800

When it comes to luxury phones, they’re mostly a joke. Every so often you see a phone made with gold or encrusted with diamonds, but when the tech becomes outdated so fast, who cares about spending extra on looks?

Well in a bold move, LG has announced the LG Signature Edition. Set to be sold in South Korea, the phone’s highlighting feature is its Zirconium Ceramic body, which is said to be incredibly resistant to scratches. Under the hood, it’s basically a slightly upgraded LG V30, not like anyone has heard of that phone. For all you know, I made up that phone.

The phone also comes bundled with a pair of B&O headphones, which probably inflates the price. Unfortunately, there’s no word on whether it will be released in other countries. That’s alright, the only way I’d buy this phone anyway, was if it included an iPhone X and $800 cash.

You Can Now Buy A Pikachu Wireless Charger

Just in case you weren’t satisfied with a regular wireless charger, you can now buy one that looks like your favorite Pokémon, as long as your favorite Pokémon is Pikachu.

Made by TeknFun, the Pikachu charger does exactly what you would expect, charges your phone and looks adorable while doing it. In addition to the wireless charging pad, the charger also includes 3 additional USB ports to charge other devices, making it actually pretty good in terms of functionality.

I guess if you’re a Pokémon fan, it’s not a bad choice to throw in a kitchen or living room for people to top off their charge.  It’s available from GameStop for $50, but unfortunately, it’s out of stock for now.

Video Of How We Might Stop A Giant Meteor

Ever wonder where we stand on protecting ourselves from meteors? Well, the people over at Vox put together a video explains just how destructive a meteor impact could be, and just how well we can protect ourselves.

As the video explains, all you really need to do is coerce the meteor a few inches off its path to stop it from impacting us, so our best options include shooting it with laser, hitting it with a battering ram, or dressing a similar meteor in ladies clothes and have it whistle over to it.

Hit the jump for the roughly six minute video.Continue Reading
